Disabling Buttons


Former Community Member

I am just wondering if it is possible to enabled / disable buttons at runtime.

The scenario is that I have a form with a large number of questions. Some of these questions have sub questions depending on the users choice. I would like to be able to display the sub questions but have them inactive until the user clicks 'no' on radiobutton.

I have been able to gray out all the fields and the button as well as set all the fields as readOnly. I don't seem to be able to stop the button's onclick event though.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Kind Regards

Setting the button's access property to "readOnly" would make it unclickable.

Button.access = "readOnly";
